As an Alabama graduate (c76) and having grown up an avid fan, I was excited to see that this book was in print. However, there is a sameness to all the articles that reinforce want a great person Coach Bryant was, how everyone was afraid of him, how their lives were impacted, and how bad they felt when he died. Hey, Maybe it would have been nice to actually get a little more indepth with the story line.
The weak writing was surpassed by the incredible lack of proofing of the photographs that were included. In many instances, the particular player being described in a photo was actually cut out of the picture. I think Eli Gold owed us more than this weak rehash of a great subject.
End result...many, including this reviewer, will purchase the book for the subject matter...too bad it lacked in quantity and quality photography. Apologies to Coach Bryant!!!!! Roll Tide

A wonderful book about Crimson Tide Players from the past with alot of wisdom gleaned from Coach Bryant, not only for football, but for their lives.

Good general review. Not as much detail as I expected. First book to deal with players lives today.

It is hard for us older Bama fans to realize Bear is gone, but these insights into many of the personalities of some of those who played during those glory years is refreshing. It brings back many great memories that we wish we could relive again. ROLL TIDE!!
